't want there to have been something missed because of this hang-up in washington. >> john mccain acknowledged hagel will get the vote soon, and that probably will be confirmed soon, but mccain's not voting for him. i believe he is qualifinot qual but i believe we shouldn't hold up the vote any longer. >> senator lindsey graham. >> i think we're doing our job to scrutinize i think one of the most unqualified radical choices for secretary of defense in a very long time. >> amazing that a former republican senator from nebraska would be called a radical choice for secretary of defense by a fellow republican. even approving to hagel is confirmed when the senate reconvenes next week, the damage may be done. >> quote, it's going to put him in a difficult position once he gets there. i don't think everyone will say we've put you through the ringer, now forget about it. i think it's tragic and i think it's shameful. on "meet the press," mcdonough pushed back on the -- no, he's not going to be a weaker defense secretary. he's going to be a great defense secretary. >> let's remember that r
's going to be an interview and they expect it to go through, john mccain and others are going to vote against. we had the votes in terms of the cloture vote on friday, on wednesday, rather, in terms of having 58 votes, but now what is this whole issue of the rutgers speech? >> i think it's all about sort of desperate search to find something. usually when you are asking questions about a nominee, and i'm a really big dlooefr believer in oversight and the advisory process, but usually you have a reason to think there's someone there. this is just scouring the kitchen cabinets and seeing if you can find any little dust balls any place, and i think they are just -- you and i have seen it so many times. if you can run out the clock enough, maybe something will come up, and this is just sort of playing for that end of the football game moment of something turning up. he will be confirmed, and i have to say i don't think he performed well at all, to put it mildly, in the hearings. i also think especially this last stretch makes republicans look terrible also. >> let's look at lindsey graham
republicans stephanie. stephanie: well played, sir. go ahead. john mccain. >> i think that that is a sufficient period of time to get answers to outstanding questions and i think that senator hagel after that period of time deserves a vote and a up or down vote on his nomination. stephanie: he was calling the white house's answers on benghazi satisfactory now. he said he's ready to find a way to end the filibuster holding up the nomination, but now is trying to get answers to questions posed by senator ted across. you pointed out that douche regarding hagels sources of income which he's going to throw might be north korea. >> have you ever been an agent of iron, north korea or mars. stephanie: this is how ridiculous they've gotten, they want to investigate an employee in hagel's office that reportedly sexually harassed another employee that hagel had nothing to do with. >> like ben gas yea which he had nothing to do with. 14 years ago this week, bill clinton was acquitted by the u.s. senate on his impeachment trial. only one of they say congressman ever made it to the

at a picture of john mccain at this town hall, that's a perfect example of someone who should not have a gun. that's a permanent scowl. it is not policy to ask me questions at a town hall. >> he's a deeply unpleasant man. >> they didn't cover that part in game change. >> stephanie: 47 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: she gets insulted by more right-wingers before 6:00 a.m. than most people do all day. it's "the stephanie miller show." billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com the bar harbor bake is really worth trying.

-scale blizzard. john mccain probably would have preferred to have been on the golf course. he was at a town hall meeting yesterday. he was for immigration when president bush was in the white house. when he was against immigration reform under president obama. the first term. now, he's back and for immigration reform. his constituents weren't too happy. one of them challenging him about why they don't build a fence. >> build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> that's not a fence. it is a banana. we're putting up a banana. about $600 million worth of appropriations that we have. >> bill: mccain has gotten so grumpy. when he ran for president in 2000, at those town hall meetings, i covered him in new hampshire. i traveled on that bus with him. he was so good at those town hall meetings. he was on top of it. people challenged him and he always had a good answer. little sense of humor. >> it's not a fence. it's a banana. >> that's one way to handle it, i guess. >> bill: stick it in your ear. cindy here to start off the hour. little bit
, visit lyrica.com. >>> on a radar, senator john mccain says he will not block an up or down vote on chuck hagel. and governor chris christie gives a little sweet talk monday night. >>> first, senator bob menendez forcefully denied allegations he had any contact with prostitutes during trips to the dominican republic with a wealthy donor. >> the smears -- the smears that right wing blogs have been pushing since the election and that is totally unsubstantiated. it's amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a website can drive that type of story into the mainstream. the bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false and, you know, that's the bottom line. >> republican senator john mccain, a sharp critic of chuck hagel's nomination as defense secretary, said he will not support a filibuster of his former colleague saying he doesn't believe the procedural move is appropriate. mccain joins four other senate republicans who have voiced opposition to a filibuster including susan collins, roy blunt, lamar alexander and richard burr. and that doesn't include thad coc
in 2010. it was also very effective for john mccain at the end of the campaign. it does resonate with the republican base. and actually with some swing voters on income equality and redistribution of wealth. >> well, i want to ask what is the opinion of rand paul up on the hill? he is not going away. i remember going to those campaign rallies when his father was running, the guy that had the broadest coalition and the coalition that the gop needs for the future was rand paul. young hippies for vermont. there's nothing wrong with hippies i was a former hippy. >> these are hipsters now. >> there is energy behind that rand paul message which rand paul has adopted. >> i think i ask the question of the gop moving forward. mitch mcconnell originally tried to beat paul. he is the opposite of the establishment. the establishment has warmed to him publicly because they're forced to. i know internally they do not care for him he's kind of become the new jim demint. he's a thorn in their side. he's the type of guy that would worry about the 30-hour rule. the filibuster. that you could sink
the whole thing. >> please do. stephanie: last week, john mccain was all elder states man-y. that was his policy last week. respecting the penalty's prerogative in making nominations role and advicing consent, blocking nomination is just not done. it's just not done. >> hmm ok. stephanie: now after saying just days ago they should not filibuster mccain said he hasn't made his mind up. he appears to be aligning himself with his closest little buddy, lindsey graham. they are so gilligan and the captain, those two. who had been demanding more information on benghazi, which he has nothing to do with. >> they're more like thurston h. oh well and lovie. stephanie: benghazi is cat nip to the tea baggers and he's trying to keep him from getting primary challenged in 2014. that's what that's about. >> huh? >> how did your little plan go to get susan rice? how did that go? [ laughter ] stephanie: that blowed up real good. >> let me just say benghazi, benghazi benghazi. >> this is the first time in the history of our country that a presidential nominee for secretary of defense has been dill busted.
that would be an unprecedented effort. when john mccain points that out, you know, seriously. >> huh? >> stephanie: senator carl levin said their demands are beyond the scope of what has been asked traditionally of former nominees. a point echoed by john mccain. >> eh? >> did i or didn't i? wait. what day is it? who am i for and against? who am i mad at this week so i can choose my position on who i have a grudge against? >> no, sir one should impugn his character and integrity. they were accusing him of lying. >> of colluding with iran against the interests of the american people. i mean dick cheney went on -- i guess it was a fox interview. can't go anywhere else. but he was -- his big thing was that the president's choices including hagel are a specific strategy to endanger the american people and undermine be. it's doing it. >> stephanie: he can talk because he served so patrioticically in vietnam. >> no terrorist things happened on cheney's watch though. >> you're nothing. >> nothing bad happened. >> no wars of choice. we made sure that our soldiers had everything they needed wh
change like the one john mccain and joe lieberman worked on. if congress won't act soon to protect future generations, i will. >> let's bring in the daily beast who urged the president to hammer the gob. good to see you. did the president take your advice? >> i think he did. specifically with reference to the budget cuts that loom and with regard to that issue, i think he was very tough on the republicans. he came out and framed the issue the way he wanted and i was glad to see he started the speech after the introductory remarks. the lead line is march 1st. i was glad to hear him say that the american people that the republicans are playing a game here. i'm not going to have it. >> they said the speech was a christmas wish list. michael? >> in some respects, sure. as your guests said, it does seem unlikely that the things will be law by january if you look at the total package off the top of your head, give me the two big ones. >> immigration is first on the list. i'm a naysayer and that gets through the house of representatives the day i see it. immigration is one. it still has a better

senator, ted cruz. barely in office a month and listen to this exchange he had with john mccain. >> it is at a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country, and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> now, cruz went on to say, i don't have any evidence that moneys come from north korea but i mean this is a fellow member of the texas delegation. >> sure, and i met ted, and he's always been nice to me, but that was, quite frankly, shameful to suggest that somebody that was a decorated veteran in vietnam, who was wounded and hurt for his country was not loyal to his country i think really is quite harsh and had no place there. >> you know what, he's not running for senator congeniality and he doesn't much care. there was no predicate for suggesting that that money came from north korea or any other very horrible country, and as the former solicitor general of texas, he ought

of them are willing to cut people is to do what they would otherwise do. when lindsey gramm and john mccain are saying that this is really crazy stuff, you know there are people both in the senate and house that get it and want to avoid this. anybody on the defense side, everybody knows we have to trim our sails. at least we should allow the secretary to make the decisions as opposed to this crazy across the board. >> talking about the budget issue your state is facing. you had to raise taxes in your state to meet the budget deficit. what is the way ford for governors in this country who are facing similar scenarios? you raise taxes. and other states that is not tenable. is that a mix of spending cuts and tax increases? >> i was the first democrat elected governor and 24 years. the outgoing governor handed me a deficit larger than any other state in the nation representing 17% of revenue. there was no way to cut your way out of it. there was no way to tax arena of it. you had to do both. we had to respect the relationship as the employees and we did both of those things. so much so t
